I love London. I love how much there is to see for free.
I love the buzz of the city, the varied choices of places to eat, the old buildings mixed in with the new.
We started off with trafalgar square and the National Portrait Gallery. They had a fab contemporary photography exhibition on. There were so many inspiring photos and so much inspiration to be found.
We then headed towards Liberty. Believe it or not, I have never been there, but it was a treat to be sure. I spent a happy time stroking the fabric in the haberdashery section and realising I couldn't afford any of it!
In the afternoon we took a trip to Lambeth to see the First World War galleries at the Imperial war museum. There was just so much to see, so much to take in and a lot of emotion to contend with. It is well worth a visit.
I always forget that walking around London is a bit of a workout! I think I got more exercise in one weekend than I have all term.
The next day we headed up to Islington and explored the beautiful shops in that area. Sitting in a cafe munching on croissant and coffee, I decided that this wasn't a bad way to do life. Just a shame the work has to come in somewhere!
Getting away for a weekend was so refreshing. London town, you are pretty lovely.
When I am next in the city I am keen to meet up with a few of you who live there! I would love your inside knowledge about where to eat, visit and explore and of course, a catch up face to face wouldn't go amiss!
